Summer solstice

by Kayla Kluver


Yesterday was the longest day of the year, and what a beauty. I spent all afternoon at the park playing bat and ball - I've the blisters to prove it - and lounging in the green green grass of Hampstead Heath. After a quick dinner my boyfriend and I grabbed a couple beers and made our way to granary square near King's Cross. I've written about this public space before but it's brilliant, so I repeat, go have a look. New sun chairs were scattered around the fountains so we snatched two and lounged with our drinks until the sun went down at nearly ten. As with any public space, the experience is largely influenced by who you get stuck sitting next to.  And we had a rotary of loud pre-teens - sans any adult supervision - splashing water everywhere (on me mainly), a drunk group of ladies with a dog that barked non-stop and a trio of men who got up and left their heap of empty beer bottles and trash for someone else to clean up (such a pet peeve). Luckily their stays were all relatively brief and for the majority of the evening there was a friendly, social hum of chit chat and laughter. Only bummer is that the days are getting shorter from here on out, but let's not dwell on that. I wore my Urban outfitters dress with Zara shoes and slipped on my army green Zara jacket when the sun went down. Did you get out to enjoy the late evening sun?  KKxx
